Based on these picture, I think you might have a Series 500 spiral balance. I don't believe your parts are still available, but we have some possible substitutes. I suggest taking a look at the following parts and see if you can adapt them to your window: start with our 17-012 and 17-048 shoes, 18-063 top guide, and finally the screw on 67-002 face guides. The 67-002 is made to be installed on the side of the sash with a short screw. These keep the sash from moving from side to side. What do you think of this hardware?

Dave,
thank you for your reply.
I have bin told from a local window repair shop that these parts look like the windows may be made by stanley 35 to 40 years ago.
the top guides look they will work
bottom 17-048 looks like I can make work ,do you have the guides for that part.
thanks again for all your help

Hello, Dante. Are you able to confirm that the Series 500 Dave recommended is a match? Also, is it possible for us to see your window? That may help. In the meantime, we will continue our research.

Yes the balances look like series 500
I'll send you a picture of the window
I hope they help

Thank you again! This is a big help. We are currently working on a possible replacement for the bottom balance foot you showed. Hopefully it will work! We are still waiting for it to come in, though. I will let you know the moment it is available.

Sure! I would give it 2 to 3 turns and try it out. If it still droops a little, consider 1 or maybe even 2 more turns. You don't want to go much higher than that. You should stop when you feel the tension.
